EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E) is a subsidiary of Edvance, which is a joint venture between EDF and Framatome, established in 2018 in charge of the design and the realisation of nuclear islands for new projects in France and worldwide.
In particular, EDF EPR Engineering UK is responsible for the design and construction of the nuclear island for Hinkley Point C (HPC) project and preparing the design replication and engineering activities for the Sizewell C (SZC) Project.

At HPC we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK providing low carbon electricity for around six million homes.

For the SZC Project, work on the replication strategy and some early design studies are already underway and being delivered and managed from both France and UK.

For the HPC/SZC project, we are looking to recruit for the role of Low Voltage System Engineer & Technical Engineering Lead.

The Low Voltage System Engineer & Technical Engineering Lead main roles are:

  • Produce, Review and update the system documentation for the low voltage switchboards of the plant, this includes operator instructions, human machine interface, safety and environmental specification, control logic design, as well as periodic testing in compliance with the engineering rules, methodologies, quality processes, and tools
  • Managing requests for modifications to system(s) issued by various external parties by producing specifications and following engineering cycle (I&C and/or mechanical design changes specifications)
  • Analysis and verification of the applicability of these modifications and challenging them as appropriate
  • Developing technical solutions and presenting them to the client to help resolve technical issues (technico-economic optimisation approach
  • Organising and performing the technical review and acceptance of the documentation produced by the equipment supplier under the guidance of the Contract Engineering Lead
